Road Worlds for Seniors 2019 Coming up Soon!
The Road Worlds for Seniors is a global cycling competition hosted by Motitech that creates
friendly competition against long term care homes and the individual residents, to see who can
travel the most kilometers over a six week period.
It’s a competition, but most importantly it encourages physical activity and social engagement in
seniors and adults living with dementia.
Last year, 2,500 participants signed up from Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, United
Kingdom and Canada. This year, we’re aiming even higher and have a goal of 7,000 participants
from even more countries.
“Road Worlds for Seniors brought people together, participants
made new friends. Individuals who couldn’t normally engage in
physical activity were able to pedal the bike. A family member
commented on how it helped his father with his mobility

Last year, our global male champion was from right here in Canada! Norman Côté cycled
200kms each day to pull out the win in the final days of a close competition. Not only did
Norman win an individual title, the team he rode for, Bruyère Village in Ottawa, Ontario, also
took the bronze medal in the team competition.
Norman went on to take the title at Bruyère Village’s internal competition earlier this year, so
competitors will want to step up their game come September!
September is coming up quickly, so be sure to sign up early to secure your team’s spot in this
